Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics (SVCG)
Our SVCG research group, within the Department of Computing Science, is a part of the Johann Bernoulli Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science (JBI) of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
The group carries out research in the area of scientific visualization, information visualization, software visualization, multiscale shape analysis, illustrative computer graphics, and innovative interfaces using large displays. We apply our research to fundamental and practical problems from the life sciences (functional brain imaging, bioinformatics) and astronomy. The group participates in the research school Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience (BCN) and the Neuroimaging Center (NIC) of the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen.
